Taking care of soon to be moms was never a passion for me… never a goal. I never said, “I hope to adjust a bunch of pregnant women”. I never put together a marketing plan to connect with OBGYN’s or anyone else who could introduce me to a bunch of women about to have a baby. It simply never happened.
But then it did.
Without planning, there were suddenly a plethora of pregnant women in our practice. And the cool thing, is that adjusting a woman during pregnancy is incredibly fulfilling, especially when baby comes. The goal for adjusting a pregnant woman, is the same as it is for adjusting anybody. Improve the nervous system, build a corrective change, encourage on a healthier path of nutrition (dare I say I disagree with 95% of the nutritional advice given to pregnant women from the typical model).
One thing that is really cool about all of this, is that we are working to not only insure a healthier mother through the process… but because of a healthier mom, without doubt there will be a healthier baby. This is the reward, this is the reason why even though it was never a goal to serve more pregnant women, it has become one of the most rewarding parts of our practice.
Because not only is God’s miracle of life centered around the health of mom, it is also centered around the development of a nervous system. Inside that head is a brain that organized every tissue in that body to make a perfect little being. The nervous system that activates all of the specific components of DNA, that arranges and builds the components of a heart, and of lungs, and every gland. This little body is miraculous, and beyond imagination in complexity, yet so simply in organization.
Brain controls everything.
One of my patients just had a baby yesterday. I haven’t met this little cutey yet, but I cannot wait to do so. It will be the joy of the day, and ultimately it is our effort to insure the path to health is a path that can be navigated by parent and child, and we’ll do what we can to help.
Be well and Be blessed, and be inspired by a developing baby. It is just awesome!
